    Ghost

    Ghost is like Jon's shadow but he was with the nights watch, as he wasn't at the BotB's. He needs to be there just to remind everyone Jon is more Stark than Targ. Maybe he'll rip out Danys Throat in the End.
  2. The NK left a message with the Umber boy. Whats was the point of that if that as no-one to to see it. The NK let them get past him because he wants them all to be ready for a battle at Winterfell. But why does he need a battle a seige will do just as well, not like he has any other armys to face him. In fact it makes no sense to have a battle at all, Sansa already said they don't have enough food for the two armies. A battle distracts them so going south is an option. But dragons don't work so well as we can see in the north. Likewise perhaps for dead dragons in the heat. Oldtown is a neat target, easy pickings to raise another army and open a two front attack, otherwise he turns up after the AotD have weakened the forces at Winterfell and used up some of that dangerous dragonglass. Otherwise hes going to come in via the crypts. they will be used somehow, they keep been mentioned

    Heresy 220 and the nature of magic

    The women are needed to provide sons, so he can't go sacrificing them. Short term fix would lead to long term problem. Plus they are both his 'entertainment' and his workforce. If Gilly's idea of brothers is to be taken at face value, the WW are the boys. They need real humans to make WW. Am I correct in believing the CotF made the WW from a human by a magic inspired stabbing to turn them into something else. The others are just vessels possessed by 'something' WW controlled, they are the canon fodder the troops for the war. The NK (or great other?) needs his captains or WW to fight a large scale war. They have being collecting them from Caster for a number of years now in preparation. The real question is perhaps how Caster got the idea in the first place. He must have started with one wife and build up his 'wives' over a number of years. Therefore the supply of sons would have grown from one every couple of years to perhaps several a year. If he is now running out of sons the demand is rising perhaps because whatever is behind this sees a more urgent need as the war is coming. But who gave him enough knowledge to figure out that these WW which he must have known about to sacrifice to in the first place would be satisfied with his sons. Lets face it the WW don't seem overly chatty and no one else among the Wildlings are doing this. Someone human enough like coldhands or similar figure that is a go between. The idea was planted there not a specific instruction as I'm sure the WW don't really want sheep.

    Perhaps this refers to time going in reverse, ie rewind, hence the earth spinning the wrong way, seas not yet formed, land being dust

    Yes this seems to clearly point to Wylla being Jon's mother. And the text points to this not being a secret as young Edric seems surprised Ayra doesn't know. So Wylla has to have a reason to play along with this and Ned has to have strong belief that she will. A thought occurs that this is part of a deeper conspiracy. Faegon is actually the real son of Rheagar and Jon is just the decoy. Ashara isn't dead but needed a cover story to run off with him and bring him up to his destiny. ie she is the woman with Jon Con. Hence Jon doesn't need to know anything so can just end up at the wall. More to the point of all this did Lyanna have a plan in mind for Jon other than hiding his true parentage. Rheagar certainly did, beliving he need to produce the third head of the dragon. How much was Lyanna in on it, I'm guessing she is fully in the know as she doesn't seem to be a women to be trifled with or just have her head turned by the handsome prince. The assumption of Ned hiding Jon and claiming to be his Father is this is what he promised Lyanna. Of course this might be just what Ned did as part of his way of keeping Lyannas promise, what the promise is who knows, but it must have significance to the song of ice and fire I think, as opposed to the game of thrones.

    Ahh! thanks wasn't sure about that.

    R+L=J v.166

    That makes sense. Whoever she is Ned must have been confident that she would not tell the truth of who Jon is. She is happy to accept being Ned's bit on the side as If I'm right it is well known she is Jon's mother. She is a wet nurse so of low birth but allowed into high households as who else has a wet nurse. She is kept close to the Daynes. This is a massive secret to keep and must have a certain shame attached being Ned's discarded lover, so wouldn't help with finding a husband. Dorne has a different set of morals to further north so perhaps this isn't a thing in Dorne anyway. Nevertheless she isn't hidden, open to anyone e.g Vary's getting info on her and Ned. So Ned has to have complete trust in her and the Daynes can offer her protection but why. Or the Daynes know something about R+L=J and due to pressure from Ashara and their through AD faith in Rheagar will keep his secrets. However If the Daynes know he is the third head of the dragon etc they also know Ned isn't doing anything to reveal it and is never going to so he can't become the PTWP. So then logic of her staying in Starfell is she was just a Dayne wetnurse hence just goes back to their household, so why does Ned trust her to keep the secret? loyalty to Lyanna? Lyanna must be the key, He would follow her lead on this. Of course the easiest solution is that its just true. Jon is his bastard. Didn't Ned tell Jon he would tell him about his mother when he got back from KL? in which case he by default must also tell him about his father if its not him.

    Small Questions v. 10106

    Ahh! perhaps not such a small question then. I was wondering because if someone told him then there may be someone running around who also knows the truth of R+L=J apart from HR, which of course has a whole new set of implications.

    where did Ned get the information that Lyanna was at the tower of Joy.

    But we don't know what the promise was.

    Heresy 219 and a whisper of Winter

    Stannis is a possibility cos he is a major player, and the Mummers version was pretty lame I thought. Or someone seemingly on the fringes eg Tarly betraying Highgarden and backing fAegon taking the best of Highgardens troops to take KL. Rickon but whats the twist he is just a pawn?

    How did Gared get through the wall to desert? Is this in the book or am I getting confused with the other thing?

    Ok that make sense. Completely left field here then with no evidence but if we are looking at big difference with mummers tale, what about Jon becoming to see the world from their side. As in hes dead, a Stark (whichever theory we believe), He becomes what the CotF wanted in a way push back the Andals, allow everyone including the CotF to live in peace and the Starks to be the bridge or protectors between 'new' men and the old world. Perhaps these walkers were once and double crossed the CotF and got made into what they are to do the job they promised. Jon somehow bridges these worlds. Ok this isn't a theory, mere ramblings but better than Jon being on the throne or being a tragic hero having sword plunged into his heart to save the world (or even doing same to dany). Bit too lame and don't know if GMMR has a Shakespearean lean to him.

    Do we have an theory who the current WW are. Have they come from Caster's sons scenario, or are they '8000' years old left over from the original WW. In which case the revenge theory above is possible. If not then a general dislike of living humans after all they were created to destroy them. As to the ending it is to be 'bittersweet' so the sweet some Stark revenge the bitter some favorite characters die or some nasty ones live and perhaps win the game of thrones while the good ones win the story of ice and fire. The mummers version must surly be distracted by GoT but is it relevant. A king in the North would satisfy the north whatever happens down south. Relevance of Jeyne is to perhaps provide a male line of succession if the KintN/queen doesn't quite make it to the end. Any child is too young to influence current events as there is currently no shortage of Starks. So a prologue maybe to give some backstory or future story but not have big influence on current arcs, perhaps as a vehicle to introduce us to the much anticipated appearance of H. Reed. Or the whole thing could be the WW win and Jon becomes the Nights King and rules the world with his other dead buddies. Who says there has to be any good guys.
